There is something special about the missing mother and son, special enough that they have certain people looking for them. Will Lana and Gabriel be able to find them before the others?

Overall I really enjoyed this read, with several POV’s it was really easy to follow and get pulled in. We get steamy moments, violence, sci-fi, and so much more.

17 Marigold Lane (Prudence Penderhaus Book 1) by R.M. Gilmore – Review by Michelle Austin

17 Marigold Lane17 Marigold Lane by R.M. Gilmore
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

17 Marigold Lane was a great 5 star read and book one in the Prudence Penderhaus series.

My heart was squeezed and I got teary eyed fairly quickly after I started this book. My heart went out to Prudence. Not only has she received some very heartbreaking news, but she endures bullying while on her way to school. This is something that has been an everyday thing for her.

She decides she has nothing to lose and goes up to the supposed haunted house that everyone is afraid to go to. There are rumors of a coffin in the living room along with other spooky things. When she knocks on the door an unexpected person comes to the door, someone she never expected to meet, a boy her age.

Cassius has never been out in the world. As he gets to know Prudence she convinces him to go outside with her. When Cassius starts to do inappropriate things Prudence feels responsible for him. There are several more unexpected twists and we find out some secrets that were thought long buried away.

Overall I really enjoyed this book. Prudence is a very strong young lady, that has gone through a lot. Cassius tugged at my heart strings and he had a great connection with Prudence. These two made my heart smile. I will warn that you may need kleenex, my heart broke for the things that Cassius went through. R.M. Gilmore pulled me right in, I can’t wait to read more from this series.

Proper Impulse was a great 5 star read and book four in the Jaded Lily series.
I was pulled in right from the beginning, these two were great.

When Juniper and Milo first meet it was priceless. He end’s up arresting her and having her taken to the station. There was something about her that got under Milo’s skin, especially when she tells him that some rules are made to be broken.

I have a feeling it won’t be the last time I’ll see her in cuffs.

This is a great opposites attract read. They definitely didn’t start off on the right foot that’s for sure. I really enjoyed these two together, I had some LOL moments. This is a quick read so I don’t want to give too much away. Zeia Jameson does a great job of pulling you in and you are done before you know it.
